Rejuvenation • Reflection • Camaraderie

The Office of the Vice President for Campus Life is excited to share the pilot of a new initiative, Community Care Day. The idea of Community Care Day came directly from students, and encourages the entire campus to focus on rejuvenation, mindfulness, and community-building.

The inaugural Community Care Day took place on Friday, October 27, 2023.

Schedule Overview

Community Care Day


To achieve the goals of rest and community building, the Office of the Vice President for Campus Life will host outdoor activities, reflection spaces, and access to food across campus. To avoid over-programming the day, offices, departments, centers, and units are encouraged to consider alternative dates for events, activities, and programs.
